MLB 2010 Postseason Awards Predictions That May Happen »

Though the 2010 season in Major League Baseball has not quite ended, most fans have an idea of who they think deserves awards to symbolize their excellence this year. Some votes should be extremely close, while others may not be as close as expected. Here are my predictions for the 2010 MLB Postseason Awards for debate and perhaps even ridicule by [...]

New York Yankees Likely Need Sweep To Win Division »

With three games remaining in the regular season, the New York Yankees likely need to sweep the Boston Red Sox in order to win the American League East. That’s not officially the case, it just seems like it will be needed. The Tampa Bay Rays lost their series opener against the Kansas City Royals last night, forcing a tie atop the division [...]

New York Yankees Notes: First Place and More »

The Tampa Bay Rays lost last night which puts them in a tie with the Yankees. Both teams have three games left to play, but the Yankees need  a better overall record as the Rays would come out ahead in the event of a tie because they have a better head-to-head record. Here are some notes: Make no mistake, manager Joe Girardi still has his [...]

MLB Predictions: AL East Is There for the »

Full disclosure: I wasn't really feeling the playoff-clinching celebration on Tuesday night.I know, I know. It's a long season. Making the postseason is an achievement, and the players deserve to blow off some steam. I get that. But there's a part of me—okay, all of me—that was rubbed the wrong way by how satisfied the team seemed with [...]

MLB Playoff Predictions: Can Andy Pettitte Save »

The New York Yankees are postseason-bound, but how far they make it is another story. In 2009 the Yankees had a three-headed monster in CC Sabathia, Andy Pettitte, and A.J. Burnett. This allowed skipper Joe Girardi to use a three-man rotation in the postseason, and the results speak for themselves. Currently, the same group is still in pinstripes [...]

MLB Playoff Predictions: How the Postseason »

A solid ace is the most important part of any postseason rotation. In 2001, the Mariners were clearly the most talented team in the league, having won a record 116 games.But they ran into the Yankees' Roger Clemens and Mike Mussina and lost in a mere five games. Whatever team's pitching proves most consistent will be the team that wins the World [...]

New York Yankees: Will Robinson Cano’s Career »

You could make a case for CC Sabathia and possibly Mariano Rivera, but it is clear that Robinson Cano is and has been the MVP of the New York Yankees all year, but will his success at the plate continue when it counts the most, the postseason? Cano has always been a highly praised prospect and player in the Yankees organization, with even Don [...]

New York Yankees Clinch Playoff Berth, Set Up Pitching »

For the 15th time in 16 years, the Yankees are going to the playoffs. After CC Sabathia delivered 8.1 innings of one-run ball for his league-leading 21st victory Tuesday night, the Yankees immediately put their postseason plans into motion. The old axiom says you win with pitching and defense, and the Yankees need to do some juggling to line up [...]

Derek Jeter Can Extend His Career If He Leaves »

The twilight years of any legendary athlete's career are often filled with hilarious hyperbole from fans and sports analysts. When a player reaches a certain age, which varies based on the sport he or she plays, every year thereafter that player is subjected to intense scrutiny. For example, in 2002, when Curtis Martin, at the age of 29, only [...]

New York Yankees: Ramiro Pena or Eduardo Nunez in the »

When looking at the Yankees playoff roster, there are about 21 spots that are locked down already and just a few that are up for grabs. One spot that could make for a good debate is the utility infielder spot, and it comes down to Ramiro Pena or Eduardo Nunez. Pena probably has the upper hand in this battle. He’s been with the team since [...]
